We are delighted to announce the publication of ‘Batterie Lothringen’.
This is a complete revision and update of the book which originally appeared in 2002, and represents 20 years of meticulous research by its author, Paul Burnal.
‘Batterie Lothringen’ is the definitive history of Jersey’s only German naval artillery battery, from its formation in 1940 through to the present day.
The book is launched in 2015 to mark the 70th Anniversary of the Island’s Liberation, and to mark this momentous occasion, the print run will include a limited number of 70 hardback copies.
With over 430 pages, and lavishly illustrated with more than 330 images (including stunning aerial photographs, maps and plans, and many previously unpublished colour and black and white photographs) this has to be one of the biggest books ever published produced about an historical site in the Island Jersey.
‘Batterie Lothringen’ is scheduled to arrive in the Island during the week commencing 21 December - i.e. just in time for Christmas. The softback copies will retail at £30, and the hardback copies at £45. However, for members pre-ordering before 25 December, the books will be offered at a special one-off price of £27 and £40, respectively.
